Plastic Rivers - Yangtze from gandia blasco - gan
Craftsmanship and recycled materials in manifesto-rugs
This collection of four rugs results from the shared goal of Álvaro Catalán de Ocón and GAN to raise awareness and combat, through craftsmanship, one of the great global problems of the industrial age: plastic waste. Each rug is a faithful and scaled representation of one of the most polluted and polluting rivers on the planet: Ganges, Yangtze, Indus, and Niger. The rugs are hand-tufted with recycled plastic fibers (100% recycled PET), a material that takes on a new meaning and highlights the paradoxical beauty of its origins: rivers, wonders of nature, which have been converted into landfills that carry thousands of tons of plastic into the oceans.
The carpets of the Plastic Rivers collection were awarded the Ro Plastic Prize in 2021.
